Creative Friday

Hello, we had a keen group attend the first Creative Group Friday since the white exhibition.  A demonstration was given by Deb on attaching fabric to aliminium foil with PVA glue, once dry this can then be used to create 3D shapes, which hold their shape.  Some shapes are shown in one of the following photos.
There was also discussion and agreement to hold a picnic fashion parade, the title of which is 'Spirit of the North'.  This will be held on April 21 2012.  Fashions will be made from repurposed garments.  Next Creative Group Friday will be a trip to a second hand shop and a lunch to celebrate Christmas.
